Actor George Lazneby, Australia's very own James Bond, is selling his US mountaintop estate in California.

He's asking for $3.49 million for the 1950s ranch homestead on 200 hectare at Pearlblossom, which is in the Antelope Valley of the Mojave Desert, in northern Los Angeles County.

The property is split up in to 12 parcels. Lazenby started collecting the adjoining parcels four decades ago after neighbours complained about his motorcycle riding.

Lazenby was famous for following in Sean Connery's footsteps as 007 when he played the English spy in the 1969 film On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

The Queanbeyan-born actor had already stepped aside from the role before the premiere.

It's been four years since Lazenby had Sydney property, selling a Mosman house for $2.9 million.

It was co-owned with his now former wife, US tennis star Pam Shriver.

With family on the north shore, for many years he owned a Cammeray waterfront home which sold for $2,253,281 in the late 1980s.

Lazenby has credits that include Universal Soldier (1972), The Dragon Flies (1975) and Gettysburg (1993)and last year he appeared in the direct-to-video thriller Death Game.
